"Acting is living truthfully under imaginary circumstances." These words, spoken by Sanford Meisner, succinctly describe the basis for training at Acting in the Moment. Meisner work deepens the focus on what is going on in the present and uses exercises to get students out of their heads and responding from a truthful, instinctive, and impulse driven place, moment to moment. Acting in the Moment builds a foundation of skills for the actor and non-actor that translates both on and off stage.

Among the 40 drama teachers that Dramatic English hire to Hong Kong every year over the last 10 years, Matt was one of the most outstanding ones who has the patience for slow learners and tried creative ways to help them. He also demonstrated the ability to help bright students to unleash their talents to achieve more. I appreciated having him with DE for 2 years."

"As a former talent manager I would often go to acting schools and workshops. I met Mr. Unger through Ron Millkie's acting class. I was immediately impressed with Matt. Not only did he give an outstanding performance, his passion for the craft was intense. I was privileged to represent Mr. Unger for a couple of years and enjoyed his performances on stage and screen. I know Matt will bring his love for acting and passion for sharing the craft with any student lucky to be under his guidance."
